Sigma Lens Wins EISA Award - Sigma has won the Macro Lens of the Year EISA award.
The lens has won the European Macro Lens of the year 2012 -2013.
Judges said: "The Sigma APO Macro 150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM is one of the best performing macro lenses available on the market. The combination of a long focal length, and thereby good working distance between lens and subject, high sharpness even at full aperture and optical image stabilisation makes it perfect for catching dragonflies, butterflies and other elusive insects handheld. But the lens is also excellent for photographing plants or portraits when you want to achieve a really soft and pleasant blurry background."
The EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) awards are chosen annually by panels representing nearly 50 prominent Photo, Video and Audio magazines from over 18 European countries.
